Open studio is now closed!
I have a new studio partner who has expanded into the front space which I was previously using as a gallery during Art Crawl. This makes me sad but also happy because in the five years I have been here, Art Crawl has evolved, and it's nice to take a break from participating so I can go out and see everything and enjoy the night. I recommend Art Crawl as an event where surprising and delightful things can be encountered. Here is a little more information about it.
WHAT: James Street North Art Crawl
WHEN: From 7-11 p.m., on the second Friday of every month
WHERE: James Street North, Hamilton Ontario
The James Street North Art Crawl happens monthly, on the second Friday of every month. Galleries and artist's studios in the James Street North area all open for this event, coordinating new exhibitions and performances each month.
